Letter From the President
I often refer to the University of Idaho as a university on the rise. We bolstered our enrollment, reached ambitious fundraising goals, supported students at unprecedented levels and opened facilities that transformed our campus.
We’re now positioned to invest in our future and redouble our efforts to support students and faculty in addressing challenges that face our state and our world. This issue of Here We Have Idaho features Vandals making a difference in communities small and large across the state.
College of Law students in Boise took on complex legal work to assist neighbors facing eviction. In Moscow, several College of Art and Architecture students designed and built an affordable house in collaboration with the Moscow Affordable Housing Trust and a generous U of I alumnus. The burgeoning West Ada School District identified a need for more administrators and worked with the U of I to develop a pipeline for principals.
The vision for the Center for Agriculture, Food and the Environment is embodied in interdisciplinary research on soil and water by U of I graduate students. And the Community Water Resource Center brings numerous partners together to tackle lake health and water quality in Coeur d’Alene.
These stories and others in the following pages embody the pillars of our Brave. Bold. Unstoppable. campaign: student success, sustainable solutions and supporting a thriving Idaho. We officially launch the second phase of our campaign this month, and we’re well on our way to our ultimate fundraising goal of $500 million by 2025.
Thank you for investing in our university.
